A 36-year-old man has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly trafficking his wife to Mali for prostitution and later selling his two-year-old for N600,000.

The suspect was identified as Kingsley Essien by Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Ogun state police public relations officer, in a press release by the Ogun state police command.

He was allegedly arrested after selling his son for N600,000 and moving his wife out of the country for prostitution.

“The suspect was arrested after his wife, Bright Essien, reported to Agbara divisional headquarters that sometime in October 2021, her husband, Kingsley Essien, informed her that he had secured a job for her in Bamako, Mali, and that he has assisted many people to that country for greener pastures before,” read part of the statement released on Thursday.

“She went on to say that because she was married, she didn’t suspect anything until she arrived in Mali and discovered she had been sold to a human trafficker cartel led by a woman for one million four hundred thousand naira.”

The suspect’s wife was pushed into prostitution in Mali, according to Oyeyemi, but she later found her way to the Nigerian embassy in Bamako, where she was helped back to Nigeria.

Bright learned her son, who was in the custody of the suspect, was missing after she arrived in the nation from Mali, according to the police spokesman.

After filing the report, Abiodun Salau, the Divisional Police Officer in charge of the Agbara division, dispatched his investigators to track down the culprit, who was subsequently arrested.

During questioning, Oyeyemi said the suspect confessed to the crime, saying that he sold the 2-year-old child for N600,000.

In response to the arrest, the state’s Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, ordered that the suspect be sent to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department’s Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labor Unit for discreet investigation.
